Default Disc Golf Debate

We had a good debate with some friends about whether or not a disc golf disc would go through a watermelon if you threw it hard enough. We tried it out and recorded it. The MVP Catalyst is high speed and aerodynamic enough to give us the best chance at doing it.

How about a William Tell throw?

And now I know how to open those pesky, tough, bananas.

Gotta remove the stickers on the apples. Measurable thickness and such.

Sounds like you're just trying to plug an MVP disc. Any personal interest there?

There is an apple out there by the name Envy. Hmm. What would happen if an Envy disc were thrown at an Envy apple?

Of course the answer is yes.

Kind of hard to watch the watermelon scream out in slo-mo pain from 8 - 22 seconds.
